Math Clinic Policies

  • Regular attendance is critical to ensure your child makes progress and gains momentum with learning.
  • Your tutor is finishing their degree and plans on graduating. He/she must tutor at least two children for a combined total of 100 hours. Excessive absences and tardiness will make it difficult for them to graduate on time.
  • A professor will observe your tutor 10 times throughout the year. This is to help support their development as a reading teacher. He/she will be graded on these lessons. It is critical that your child be present for these observation lessons. You will be updated when these dates are scheduled.
  • If you must cancel or are running late, call or text the tutor directly.
  • Sickness, family emergency, and car trouble are typical reasons for needing to cancel. Please miss no more than 3 sessions this year. Your tutor might occasionally need to cancel because of his/her own family or school related reasons.
  • We follow the MA Public Schools’ vacation calendar.

I have read and understood the Math Clinic Policies.
